ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This extra long playing CD is a reissue of renowned banjoist/vocalist Cynthia Sayer's first two recordings put together: "The Jazz Banjo Of Cynthia Sayer (Vol 1)" featuring Milt Hinton & Dick Wellstood, and "More Jazz Banjo (Vol 2)" featuring Bucky Pizzarelli & Dick Wellstood. Both recordings won "Top-10 Classic Jazz Release" (Cadence Magazine) for their release year.

Cynthia Sayer's hot, swingy sound will shatter any stereotypes you might have of jazz banjo. She is internationally acclaimed as one of the top 4-string banjoists anywhere. Her vocal and multi-instrumental talents add even more to the mix. Ms. Sayer tours regularly and is featured in concert and at festivals worldwide. Her television, radio and film credits are extensive, both in the USA and abroad. Her dazzling list of credits includes appearing at The White House, performing with The New York Philharmonic, being a member of Woody Allen's New Orleans Jazz Band, and working with many top artists ranging from jazz greats Wynton Marsalis, Dick Hyman, Bucky Pizzarelli, Marian McPartland and Milt Hinton to Bela Fleck to actors Bill Cosby and George Segal. She is even the subject of a Trivial Pursuit question ('90s edition).
